    1>4>3>2 for me (as a consumer, I know nothing about composing).
    No internet (and therefore no TC) for me from end October until end November.

    To the person who submitted no. 2 and received fewer votes -> don't despair! There is nothing wrong with your ideas. The main problem I can hear is that none of the individual parts are rhythmically unique. They all play at roughly the same tempo, thus sound jumbled together. That can be fixed.

    Try to use a wider variety of notes such as eighth notes, quarter notes, half notes, whole notes etc.. and offset the parts so that each has a chance to lead at times. That will allow each a chance to breathe. Syncopation and suspensions can make things sound less mechanical.

    Sorry to say ... but some of you here don't have a clue what music actually is and to be aware that some of you actually have musical knowledge, all this is even more sad."

    This is really good advice! I agree. Thanks for your comment.

    I would say the counterpoint could use some work. There were quite a few instances where the voices rose and fell together at different steps, which seemed to clash at points, for instance. Around :26 and :37, it sounded the most awkward to me. For the style I don't think it suited.

    I don't know if I can say I completely enjoyed any of them. I think the first one managed to capture the scherzo spirit more though.

    This poll closes in two days, by which time I will announce the winner of this first round.

    It looks like 4 and 5 are both very popular, with 5 just slightly ahead as 9 out of 16 people voted for it, the only one to have an absolute majority of votes.

    Everyone who entered a piece, can you please send me a PM telling me if you would or would not like me to announce your TC usernames if you don't come in first place?

    Pssst... the poll says 16 voters, not 'votes.'

    Thanks for everyone who voted me! I'll get the next round started tomorrow. Also, thanks for the other participants, great music! Especially submission 1 was something I really liked.
